Turn About Is Fair Play

Ever heard that expression? Maybe the banker neighbor should think about that. He didn't like it when we used to trap wild hogs and sell them so he installed a high deer proof fence. When John was missing a cow he wouldn't permit him to go into his property to look for it. He said he would look but today John did him a biggie. When we were leaving the back forty this morning John said is that a cow down there by the creek? Nooo I said it's a deer and it has biiiig horns. It was an exotic and beautiful. It had to come from Mr. Banker's side but how, with that tall fence? It was almost tame. When we got home John called him to tell him his deer was on the wrong side of the fence. So John went back out to meet him and his son and grandson with a tranquilizer gun. They looked the place over and no deer, so John gave him a key so he can go back and look for the deer and we will look Monday when we go feed the cattle again. Mr. Banker was very appreciative now, as he said the deer cost him $6,000. Duh! Yep we were smart enough to figure out it was an expensive deer.

Imma thinking the guy might want to be a little more friendly. If he has any sense he will, that is one example that could cost him a lot of money, huh?

But sometimes it takes a 2x4 up side the head for someone to realize they do not live on an island. I imagine the Banker has many feet of fence to check, that if broken, he could lose a lot more in a short period of time.

Nice of John to turn the other cheek.

I hope the Banker finds his deer before some hunter does. It would some expensive deer meat. Lol.

Holy cow! That's a lot of money for a deer. I applaud John for being so congenial to the Banker dude.

I like John a whole lot more than the banker. ~Mary

I had no idea a deer could possibly cost that much! Hope you are having a nice weekend Paula, and hope you are feeling well.
